Recipe Friday: Scotcheroos!
Spent an afternoon with my sister Michelle, she was busily making Scotcheroos to give away to a carnival crew that was working in the park across the street from her. I had not had them before and couldn't believe how EASY they are!
6 c. rice Krispie cereal
Pour these in a large bowl. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a saucepan:
1 c. karo Syrup
1 c. white sugard
cook until it's at a full rolling boil. Boil 1 minute, remove from heat and stir in:
1 C. peanut butter
stir until the peanut butter is melted and it is all smooth.
Pour over the rice krispies and stir until the cereal is coated. Pour into the 9x13 pan and press down.
While the bars are cooling, in a microwave safe bowl:
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. butterscotch chips
Melt on high 1 1/2 minutes, stir, melt again for 1 minute, stir until smooth. Pour over the bars in the pan. Allow to cool, cut into squares. These are pretty rich, so I cut them in small squares.
***Michelle tends to use the whole bag of each chips, they make the bars taste so much better, but if you only have half a bag of each it will work, too.
